The coolest dork-disc ever?!

This has got to be the coolest looking dork-disc I have ever seen. That is of course if that is what it really is. Someone with a Sekine needs to snatch this up!

Ok, as much as I don't like dork disks, I'll admit that one is pretty cool. If I had a Sekine.

Yeah, that is right up there with the one that has a high and low gear switch. I can't remember who had that.

I'd say it's a hub cap, but steppin' would just find a way to mount it on a bike, anyway.

From the first picture, I would have guessed it to be only about 1/2 that diameter.

If everyone made dork discs like that, they'd be known as cool discs.

I think it was a bike that Doohickie bought. I think it was a dept store bike with some crazy hub / derailleur shift system. I'll see if I can find it.

Ah ha.... found it! It is a Sears branded bike with a 5 speed lark derailleur and some sort of internal hub shifter, centrifugal force maybe? Any way, notice the L-H setting on the "dork disk":
